Sermons on Jesus Christ (Page 2)
The Thieves – Salvation is Free
If God’s perfect Son had remained distant and not drawn near to us, there would be no means of forgiveness for our sins. The story of the thieves gives us hope by demonstrating their experience of God’s love and mercy.
The Condemned Sinner – Barabbas
The story of Barabbas and the angry mob demonstrates how quick we are to follow the crowd and discard God. But in Jesus’ cross, we are free from the punishment and condemnation we deserve.
The Worldly Skeptic – Pilate
If we seek man’s approval, we will never find God. The desire to please people will keep us from God’s grace offered in Jesus.
The Sorry Traitor – Judas
No one squandered spiritual opportunity as terribly as Judas. His life demonstrates that having a credible testimony of faith does not connect us to Jesus. Instead, we must have a broken and contrite heart that calls out to Him in faith and dependence.

The Self-Righteous Hypocrite – The Priests
Jesus urges us to understand the difference between a person who is superficially moral and a person who is spiritually alive, between a person who ACTS righteous before men and a person who IS righteous on the inside.

God’s Remedy For Sin
Our sins are killing us. We must look to Jesus in faith in order to live! This daily consecration to the Lord places us in a position to receive God’s gracious provision.
The Frailty of Godly People
The very same hardships that God designs to grow our faith can also destroy our faith when we grow frustrated. Frustration places us in great spiritual danger because it destroys our faith in God and tempts us into unbelief. But our unbelief dishonors God and disconnects us from His divine blessing.
If we are in Christ, we may be faithful or unfaithful, but we are ambassadors for Christ. And as ambassadors, we do not make up our own message; we do not have our own words to speak. We are given a message by the One who sent us.
